VNC on RetroPie?



  • I’m looking to get my RetroPie up and running again, but have no idea where my SD card is, so I’m starting fresh.

    I was wondering if there was anyway I could pre-configure the .img to install / enable VNC so I can log in via my Mac while I am configuring everything, rather than plugging in a keyboard and mouse to my Pi.

    Also, is there anyway I can pre-configure the .img with my Wi-fi SSID and password before flashing to the SD Card?

    Could I use something like PiBakery?

    Cheers,
    Stewart

    you don't need a keyboard to configure retropie, but yeah VNC won't work with the rendered elements retropie uses. you can SSH in an configure stuff via the command line/retropie scripts.

    Also, is there anyway I can pre-configure the .img with my Wi-fi SSID and password before flashing to the SD Card?

    no, only after, but you can do it directly on the SD card on your PC after you write the image. https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Wifi#connecting-to-wifi-without-a-keyboard



  • Excellent, thanks!
